People Who Talk Too Much

When I was in elementary school, I remember this one boy in my fifth grade class who, whenever he was called on by the teacher, everyone groaned.

He was one of those people that just rambles on forever. And even when you thought he was done, he would keep going.

And if you tried to cut him off, he talked louder to drown you out.

Isn’t that obnoxious? I thought so.

These people are just so frustrating to deal with on a daily basis. It just seems like they talk for an eternity. And then, when they’re done, you just don’t know what to say because you’ve zoned out of the conversation. Because you know, nobody’s attention span is that long.


It’s terrible when you’re on a first date. You may ask the simple question: So, what’s your favorite TV show?

Well, I would have to say that its __________ because __________ and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah…blah blah. And you know, I really like that guy…what’s his name…oh right, ___________ because blah blah blah blah and blah blah blah some more and blah blah blah and you know, they really have some good shows on that station. Some people don’t like them, but I do, and blah blah blah blah and if you blah blah blah some more and you blah blah blah and blah blah blah blah and blah. And really, my couch is extremely comfortable so I can watch TV for a long time without my butt hurting. And I have one of those cool remote controls that control everything in the room and I have all my favorite channels preset to the remote, and so I can blah blah blah blah blah and blah blah blah and then some. Sometimes my dog blah blah blah blah and he’ll jump around when I watch baseball because I have a big TV and he goes nuts when he sees the ball on TV and blah blah blah blah and then I go for a walk sometimes, and overall, its just a great way to stay in shape.

Notice how you have no freaking clue what was just said? Its because he talked so much that you just tuned out. And somehow, he went from his favorite TV show to staying in shape. How is that possible?!

Generally, I try to stay away from people who talk too much. But frankly, I can’t stand people who talk too little, as well. I think there’s a threshold for how much a person should/can talk.

A good conversationist knows the boundaries, but won’t stoop too low either. At least, that’s my take on it. What’s yours?

    Yeah, I understand you totally. Really dread listening to those kind of people where you are only allow to listen but not talk.
